Garden “Wine” Down

The beginning of a new season always brings about stress and packed schedules. This spring, “wine” down over the weekend with great friends and delicious KORBEL California Champagne.

Turn your backyard into a winery oasis with fresh florals, tasting stations, and tasty snacks. Reach out to a local florist or gather inspiration from Pinterest and influencers you follow on Instagram or TikTok to ensure your DIY tablescapes and backdrops are worthy of going viral. Don’t forget to bring out a portable speaker to set the mood!

Once your friends arrive, set up a tasting table with information about each KORBEL varietal available – you can even create a virtual scorecard on your phone with videos and notes about  flavor, finish and aroma. Compile the videos into a TikTok or Instagram Reel recap of your night.

Don’t forget – where there is great sparkling wine; there should also be great food! Check out our suggestions on how to recreate snacks from our KORBEL Delicatessen & Market.
